Countdown To BroadwayCon: Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened

Countdown To BroadwayCon: Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened

BroadwayCon® is pleased to announce that it will host a Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened Panel on Saturday, January 28 at BroadwayCon 2017. Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened tells the story of the creation of Merrily We Roll Along, one of Broadway’s most legendary musicals. The panel will feature Merrily We Roll Along original Broadway cast members David Cady, Forest Ray, Donna Marie Asbury, Daisy Prince, and Mana Allen. The panel will be moderated by Merrily We Roll Along superfan Jennifer Ashley Tepper.

One of the truly legendary musicals in the history of Broadway, Merrily We Roll Along opened to enormous fanfare in 1981, and closed after sixteen performances.  For the first time, Best Worst Thing That Ever Could Have Happened draws back the curtain on the extraordinary drama of the show’s creation – and tells the stories of the hopeful young performers whose lives were transformed by it. Directed by Lonny Price, a member of the original cast, the film is a bittersweet meditation on the choices we all make, and the often unexpected consequences of those choices — through success and failure. Featuring exclusive appearances by Stephen Sondheim, Hal Prince, Jason Alexander, Mandy Patinkin, Adam Guettel, Frank Rich and the original Broadway cast of Merrily We Roll Along. Produced by Atlas Media Corp in association with Allright Productions.

BroadwayCon is theatre’s answer to comic-con, tailor made for fans.
